-four-year-olds. now there is often secrecy regarding this, but many states have laws that make it a crime for people that have hiv to not disclose it when they have sex, now some people say this is not fair, but others say making it a crime just keeps them from being tested or seeking care. they hit it off, and had sex. i wore a condom. >> what he didn't do was tell his friend about having hiv. he looked for treatment at a local hospital, and they called police. rhodes was arrested, charged with criminal charges, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison. >> i served over a year locked up. some of it in maximum security. and some of it in solitary confinement. and i still have to register as a sex offender for the rest of my life. >> the attorney is rhodes new lawyer, he is asking the iowa supreme court to overturn rhodes conviction. >> this case in particular was compelling, it really was a good example of the ways in which these laws are misused by the justice system to punish people in very severe ways for things that should not even be crimes. >> about a thousand miles away in louisiana, a similar
law, in their words, to interfere with domestic laws in the united states, whether federal law, state, or local laws. and one of the most recent major reasons why they rejected this treaty, these republicans by in large voted again ratifying this treaty was because of the powerful words that rick santorum, the former republican presidential candidate said. as you know, he has a severely disabled child, a little girl. he said, i don't want international lawyers, i don't want the united nations and new york and foreign countries telling me and our local officials what they can or cannot do as far as treatment for little bella, his daughter. and that was a powerful factor in convincing a lot of these republicans to reject this treaty. they didn't see that they needed the international community, in effect, to get involved in what was going on here in the united states. the counterargument, of course, is we want to bring, by ratifying this treaty, to bring the rest of the world up to the u.s. standards in hoping those with disabilities but that obviously didn't resonate, at least not enou
asked today is it the case of the law that you have to release a 9/1 9/11 dash 911 tape like this or do they keep them private? >> andrea: if a request is made, subpoena to the tape and get reporting they are allowed to because it's part of the public record. once you do the proper steps you can get it. certain case, judge or prosecutor is pending, which we don't have here, because everybody is deceased that was involved in it. they can block it and say it's in the best interest to keep this sealed or out of the public domain. you can imagine a situation like to is very traumatic. this little girl is going to grow up knowing that her father murdered her mother. this tape is out there. it will be on the web. >> dana: any other thoughts about this before we move on? >> greg: it will change the behavior. if you know it will be released, that is the problem. it may prevent people from calling. i never like having them released. if you at a party and someone is in trouble maybe you won't call because you don't want to be involved. >> bob: good point. good point. >> dana: all right. let's mov

that could supersede current u.s. laws in some ways and impose mandatory limits on carbon emissions. president obama failed to get a cap-and-trade will pass in his first term. is he quietly planning a new carbon crackdown through other means? joining me now is lou dobbs, host of "lou dobbs tonight" on the fox business network. that was one agenda item he could not get through. cap and trade. even when the democrats controlled the house as well, they just couldn't get that through. what would he be doing through the united nations and he could do through the u.s. congress? lou: the efforts that he is undertaking here, so little is known about what we are discussing in qatar, at the meeting of the united nations we are talking about laying out a mission schedule through 2035. without any public discussion, there is nothing about it than a presidential debate, as you know. this could have a mammoth effect on this economy. we are talking about tax levels and also significant pressure on the gdp of this country, the growth rate. and some are saying, it would be a negative to drive the ec
a law that would prevent a tax hike on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. gerri: there's the president calling out congress. what do you have to say, congressman? >> yeah, here we go in the middle of this. the house passed all our tax things in april. we passed the sequestering documents in may. we waited for the senate since may to reciprocate on that. the senate and white house sat on it, and they said we'll see you in the lame duck period. now it's lame duck, and now they want to get started when we finished or work in may on it. it's been frustrating in the process. it's the same song, 38th verse on it, waiting for the senate to get it going. now we're actually going, and the president now says you can clear the table on this. the reality is this is not a tax issue. it never has been a tax issue. we have the same amount of revenue coming in in 2012 that we had in 2007, but we spend a trillion dollars more per year now than we did five years ago. this is a spending issue. gerri: spending or revenue, that is, the amount of money taken in by the federal government has
, sean, the real fiscal cliff is when the laws of economics kick in, which they will inevitably do, they have to do, because it can't go on like this. you see the results of hitting the wall in greece, in spain, i3 italy. it will happen here. unlike the european countries, there's nobody to bail us out. >> sean: how much debt could we realistically take on before the bond markets abandon us? >> we're already there. >> sean: so the very people, they voted for barack obama, they voted for more of the same, didn't listen to the arguments we were making, it was a close election, but not close enough, so they're going to be -- the people that he appealed to with class warfare, aren't they the ones most likely to get hurt? >> listen, absolutely. and warren buffett came out today and said,ing hey, he thinks it will a boost for the morale of the middle class. with all due respect to warren buffett, a boost to the middle-class is raising tax rates on the rich? >> sean: why don't they give it to the government if they think it's a moral imperative? >> i don't know what he's trying to drive i
on taxes, anything that sounds like they will be rewarded for breaking the law and they will get an easy past is considered amnesty. jon: ronald reagan did it, didn't he? >> yes. republicans are a natural homss, they believe, for latinos. they are the party of opportunity, and hard work, of entrepreneurs and they are pro family. they have to start to speak about these issues where it doesn't sound like they are breaking up families. the republicans are trying to promote for science, technology and engineering and math, whether it's a high skilled visa or a low skilled advice a whether it's farm workers, domestic workers who clean hotepal this is all immigrant labor, and this apalo has an economic component in addition to the fact that many of their churches are telling them we can no longer side with this anti-immigration position. so it is changing out from under them and i think they are going to look for a way that they can change policy without a political backlash. joons we will be talking more about the upcoming elections a little bit later in the hour. a.b. stoddard, thank you. >>

in their state. the same month the mississippi republican governor signed that small business act into law, he also signed another law that targeted one mississippi business in particular. it was designed on purpose to use state government red tape to close the last abortion clinic in mississippi. the new law placed a mandate on this business in particular. it requires doctors at this one clinic to get admitting privileges at local hospitals. since that law passed, the clinic's two main doctors have been trying to comply with the new regulation that was designed just for them. they've been applying for privileges that the state now says they're supposed to have. the doctors started with a list of 12 hospitals in and around jackson where the clinic is. the clinic's owner tells us their applications were 50 pages-plus per doctor, per hospital. the applications took weeks to compile. each hospital, each time. two of them, the big teaching hospital in the city and the baptist hospital in town, they wouldn't even accept the doctors' applications. five other hospitals did agree to receive the doctor
. kill guns, not kids. so we have to kill these gun laws that allow them -- the law enforcement has been trained and they're the only ones i feel that should have guns in public. >> this case has gotten a lot of attention, national attention, in some ways compared to the trayvon martin case. what are your thoughts about that? >> i don't think it's -- it just happened to be an african-american child and the nonafrican-american person that pulled the trigger. i think that's the only comparison. but i don't think the reason is the same. i think the reason for this gentleman was strictly anger and having the availability of a weapon. >> when people think about jordan davis, what should they remember? >> remember he's a 17-year-old child and you have a 17 or 15 or 16-year-old child, you know. and if some stranger tells you, gives you an order to turn your music down, most of the time they won't, most of the time they will give you a smart lip or whatever. but you as an adult, as parents, we don't expect people in the world to just gun down a child because of that. we don't expect a child to l
a good thing. some of the deductions, raise the law right under 250 and i would be fine with that. until people are willing to get serious and say these are the specific deductions we're talking about and willing to look at the consequences it's hard to take any seriously. >> we were talking during the break about specifics and how terrifying it is for the republicans to get into specifics because as rez ra outlines the patient convulses as it were. where is the hope in all this that a deal will get done? >> i don't think anybody wants to go over the cliff at the end of the day. we now have a really big round number from john boehner but nothing specific within it and as we went through and broke down this various deductions and loopholes many are popular, many of them make an enormous amount of sense and most of them benefit the middle class, not just the rich. i don't know where this -- where that part of the discussion goes because you're talking about unicorns earlier. they're imaginary beasts and this $800 billion through loopholes and deduction is about as real as a unicorn. >> i w

is likely to be over the 1996 law passed by congress called the defensive marriage act which allows only federal benefits for marriages twoen a man and a woman. a few lower courts have recently invalidated that law, saying guy couples deserve the same rights as everybody else. the question the justices could take up on this is whether it's okay for the federal government to try to regulate marriage, which throughout history generally has been regulated by the states. tricky calculation for the court on one hand. nine states in the district of columbia already allow same-sex marriage, including three that just voted in favor of it in the last election. we also know that 41 states have a legal definition of marriage as between a man and a woman. 30 states have constitutional amendments on it. so the question right now really is whether the country is ready for it, deborah. >> joe, really, it comes down to equal protection. and one of the reasons the supreme court is looking so closely at this is because you've got state laws that essentially are invalidating federal laws. and that's why it

in that law and we ought to be content to let some of those actually play themselves out before we start messing around with something that's so important to 50 million americans. >> i believe you've pointed out in the past the cuts that were made with medicare are the same cuts that the president was attacked for during the election. >> exactly. these are savings, about a third of which were reducing the subsidy for insurance companies providing medicare advantage programs and the rest of them pretty much cut to providers and we didn't reduce services. we expanded some while leaving money over the long term and the cbo said the affordable care act will save $1.2 trillion. again, we need to be careful what we do with the medicare portion of the social safety net because we've actually made some significant changes that have yet to play out. >> all right. thank you very much, sir. we greatly appreciate your time. >> my pleasure. >> now, ab stoddard, erin mcpike and keith boykin. a.b. let's start with you. let's read what senator demint and senator paul had to say about the proposal of boe

you go. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this. i hope republicans in the house come on board too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on. and that's to keep middle class taxes low. and i'll bring everyone in to sign it right away so we can give folks some certainty before the holiday season. >> the white house point of view and which they feel is reflected in representative cole's position there is that it is very clear that they're in the going to -- neither side is going to let taxes go up on all americans. and so why not just cut a deal on letting those tax cuts be locked in for lower income americans and work out what they're going to do about the upper income americans. house republicans say, come on, you know where we stand on this, we're not going to change overnight because you won re-election, mr. president. we need to negotiate on some of the other big issues before anybody discusses those top tax rates. >> i know you s

'm a sportsman. i have firearms. i hunt deer and pheasants and all that kind of stuff. you want law-abiding citizens to give up their rights to own firearms at this point? that's a fair question. >> it is a fair question. and i take every opportunity to emphasize. i'm glad you asked it again. absolutely not. >> well then you have a law-abiding citizen who happened to be an nfl player who gets a great deal of visibility because of this tragic incident. should he have not been able to own a firearm? >> the 2nd amendment has been decided. it's within his right to own a firearm. he should have been aware of the risks associated with it. i think there's an education job we need to do there. we need to have an honest conversation about the risks and dangers associated with firearms. and we need to do what we can from a policy perspective to keep the guns out of the hands of people that are known dangerous. i mean, you have 40% of all gun sales in this country don't go through a background check. there are things we can do like background checks to keep guns you out of the hands. we can't

that option open. so while it's technically not illegal under international law for him to have this capability these are very, very dangerous products. gregg: speaking of illegal, people who commit crimes against humanity, war crimes are held in the dock at the international criminal court in the hague. there is talk now that bashar al-assad may try to seek asylum. should the u.s. position be no, you must be held to account for what you've done, or let's just get him out of here? >> well, i don't think the international criminal court is a legitimate organization under any circumstances, but in this case i think it posts the hard question whether this determination to prosecute somebody doesn't cause more death and destruction than giving somebody like bashar al-assad immunity, getting them out of the country and trying to end this conflict. the problem is it's hard to see who can give him that real grant, maybe the russians and that's why there is reporting that they are talking to bashar al-assad. but one reason i think he and other dictators tend to stay to the end is they d
